Does thickness matter?
Posted by Gary Bubb
Absolutely!  All of our designs are made from 3/4" thick MDF compared to 90 percent of the market, which is either 1/8" or 1/4".  When you do the math it’s not a big difference.  However, when you set them next to each other and listen to people describe the differences it makes a huge impact.  The following is a list of words people have used when describing the thicker MDF versus the thinner MDF:  DEFINITION - SUBSTANTIAL - DEPTH - VOLUME - 3D - SCULPTURE - ART - VALUE - PERMANENT.  I really like the last one - PERMANENT!!! So the next time you are browsing for an unfinished item to decorate pay attention to the thickness because it really does make a big difference.
